I have a question regarding the patches that should be applied to the kernel for
the HA plugin to work...  

Problem:I apply the first "patch" and one out of the 4 files to be patched gives
an error. I'm running on a 2.6.32 kernel (UBUNTU 10.04) and the patch is
allegedly written for it (I took it from the git repository). Do you have an
idea of how can I solve it?

Perhaps I might be skipping some step?:

1.- Fresh Ubuntu installation
2.- Then in a terminal: sudo apt-get update
3.- sudo apt-get install patch
4.- Logged as root, I go to /usr/src/linux-2.6.32-38-generic
5.- patch -p1 < /home/mahler/Downloads/2-6-32-netfilter.patch

6.- I get the following:

root at mahler:/usr/src/linux-
headers-2.6.32-38-generic# patch -p1 <

P.D: I've tried with different kernel versions, different distributions but
still doesn't work
